Historical Map of Europe & the Mediterranean

Ottoman Turkey was the last of the Central Powers to sign a treaty with the victorious Allies, surrendering much of its Middle Eastern empire to the British, French, Greeks, and Armenians. However in reality the Treaty was essentially worthless as it was the Nationalists, not the Ottomans, who now ruled Turkey.
